sensible christmas shopping
Morning all, Bertha here!
First of all are you wrapping up warm? Hats, scarves and hoof mittens, that's the order of the day!
Now it's very easy to get carried away when you're doing your Christmas shopping, so it's vital that you make a list...and then stick to it!
Some people (Norma) tend to start out being quite sensible about things and then get caught up in a veritable blizzard of buying! I write down all the names of the people that I have to buy for and then think of 3 presents for each person. 1 sensible present, 1 silly present and then a little extra prezzie because I like to do that sort of thing. But do remember not to go spending more than you can afford, that won't do at all!
Of course the next thing to do is wrap them up. This needs to be done with good quality paper and little bits of ribbon. Make sure that you make sharp creases in your paper and don't skimp on the sticky tape. Then add a tag and you're done!
Right, I've just got a few more bits to buy....stay toasty warm and have regular hot drinks!
